 Blisters: First aid

If a blister is not too painful, try to keep it intact. If the skin is broken, cover it with an adhesive bandage or moleskin. Cut a piece of moleskin into a doughnut shape and place it so that it surrounds the blister. If you get a blister, cover it with medical tape and then put a bandage over it.

If the blister looks infected, go see a doctor. If you have diabetes or poor circulation, call your doctor before trying to treat the blister yourself.
